A Caledonia couple spent 30 years in the spa industry before changing things up and trading in for new careers on their lavender farm. Vic and Vickie Bennett recently launched Lavender Life Co. which offers lavender products for the body, home and for children. The couple is using the business to help give back to a foster children in Kent County.
The program is called Buy a Bunny, Give a Bunny. It is for the Xander Bunny sold by their company. The plush animal is filled with lavender from the farm and Michigan cherry pits. It can be heated up, and is machine washable in case of any messes. The inspiration came from the Bennett's soon-to-be grandson Xander, who is in the process of being adopted. Through that process, Vic and Vickie learned just how much a stuffed animal can mean to a child without a permanent home. With that in mind, the Bennetts are offering to donate one Xander Bunny to a foster child in Kent County every time someone purchases one. They are doing so with the help of West Michigan Partnership of Children.
So how can you get your hands on a Xander Bunny? You can visit XanderBunny.com. The animals are $29.95 and come in three different colors. The Bennet's goal is to give away 1,000 bunnies by the end of the year.
